Gimmie Shelter Lyrics

by Rolling Stones

Yeah, a storm is threatenin'
My very life, today
And if I don't get some shelter
Lord, I'm gonna fade away

War, children, yeah
It's just a shot away, it's just a shot away
War, children, yeah
It's just a shot away, it's just a shot away, yeah

Yeah, now the fire is sweepin'
Our very streets today
Looks like a burning puppet
Mad bull lost his way

And war, children
It's just a shot away, it's just a shot away
War, children, yeah
It's just a shot away, it's just a shot away, yeah

Rape, murder
It's just a shot away, it's just a shot away
Rape, murder
It's just a shot away, it's just a, it's just a
Oh oh, rape, murder
It's just a shot away, it's just a shot away

Yeah, storm is threatenin'
My very life today
Gimme, gimme shelter
Lord, I'm gonna fade away

War, children
It's just a shot away, it's just a shot away
War, children, yeah
It's just a shot away, it's just a shot away, yeah

It's just a shot away, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away, shot away, shot away
It's just a shot away, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away, shot away, shot away

Oh, yeah yeah
Gimme shelter, yeah
Gimme shelter, yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah

I tell you love, sister
It's just a kiss away, it's just a kiss
I tell you love, sister
It's just a kiss away, it's just a kiss away

It's just a kiss away, it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away, kiss away, kiss away
It's just a kiss away, it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away, kiss away, kiss away, kiss away, kiss away

Oh yeah
Gimme shelter
Gimme shelter, yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah
